Photowatt transforms itself

New industrial model

Photowatt’s expertise as well as the technology and industrial capacity of its historical partners have enabled the company to seize the opportunities of a rapidly growing solar energy market.

Wafers, produced with a low carbon footprint, are today marketed in the form of photovoltaic modules within the framework of calls for tenders launched by the French Government in its Pluriannual Energy Programming (PPE) aimed at deploying around 2.5 GWp per year from photovoltaic projects.

The company’s transformation plan is based on mono-like “Crystal Advanced” technology, developed by INES and ECM, a global specialist in crystallization furnaces. Mono-like is an innovative technology in the crystallization of polycrystalline silicon which increases the yield of ingots and wafers to compete with PERC technology on monocrystalline wafers.
